I'm pretty excited too. When I get a job I'll definitely pick one up.


The Wii U storage media is confirmed to be Blu-ray based and support up to 25 GB of data per disc, at 22.5 MB/s data transfer rate. Nintendo might reveal more Wii U specs tomorrow at the event in New York.
Here's hoping that means it will play Blurays too. I mean, only PS3 does right now so they'd be silly not to. (Course, they were silly not to let Wii play DVDs.)

No it won't Nintendo doesn't like to pay license fee's. Also remember Wii discs were not DVD but Wii Optical media. Wii U will also be proprietary. Good thing is like Wii I bet homebrew let's you play blu ray like DVD on Wii.

Looking at the launch window this might be one of the better launch lineup in quite some time. Sure some are ports but ports of some good games. Also very varied. Are you more the casual type? They have some of those for that/ Are you more of the Call of Duty type they got that also. Are you just in for varied genres like Action Adventure sports strategy (well sorta but not really) Horror? RPG? It's there at launch.

I think Nintendo finally got it where they failed with 3DS,DS,Wii, GCN and N64. Yeah all those had a weak launch.

Well they should pay them because Bluray would be a MAJOR selling point for me. I don't have a Bluray player. If it was a major selling point for a customer and it was between this or a PS3, they might just go for PS3. (Speaking for myself here as I want both of these consoles.)

And this is a little different. When Wii came out, everything had a DVD player in it. But now it's just PS3 that has a bluray player. It's still something of a premium option.

Also it's unfortunate but I never got DVD working with homebrew on Wii. :cry:

Wait despite Wii U will have 480P it only ships with a HDMI cable? So does that mean I can't get a Wii U?If I can't get AV cables then Nintendo lost a sale at least til I can get a TV. Or can I use my Wii AV cables?

Wii U's launch proves that the HD consoles came out too early. It would have been better for everybody if they came out a few years later. Ironically, Wii U will make Sony and Microsoft repeat that mistake by rushing PS4 and the next Xbox.

We're here at Nintendo's Wii U event in New York City where the gaming outfit's prexy Reggie Fils-Aime just announced US pricing and release details for the console, as well as it's own unique TVii service. And now that those important tidbits have been squared away, it's time to focus on the hardware. Yes, you may have seen the Wii U console many times before, but the House that Mario built's been notoriously stingy about giving media access to a non-tethered unit. Well, the time has come to see nearly every facet of this next-gen contender. As you'll note in the gallery below, the only area the Big N wouldn't let us photograph is this Premium version's backside. For whatever reason, the company doesn't want those ports shown, but we can tell you what they consist of: AC adapter, AV multiout, sensor bar, HDMI out and what looks like two ports for USB. Undecided on whether you should be placing that pre-order right about now? Then take a tour of this onyx pair and see if it changes things any.

Nintendo just confirmed you can plug in any external HDD. They said up to 3 TB. Well I think that settles that.

Not to mention you can use up to 32GB SD cards so if ya want 64GB of on board storage and 3TB HDD. I like that
